Earlier this month The Connor Brothers travelled to 'The Jungle' migrant camp in Calais to better understand the situation there. The hysterical reporting of the crisis has misrepresented the situation, and the language of politicians has added to the negative image of the migrants there. 

Conditions in The Jungle are appalling - thousands of desperate people fleeing persecution are living in squalid conditions less than an hour from the UK. 

With winter approaching conditions in The Jungle are set to deteriorate and the people living in makeshift shelters there are ill prepared for the change in weather. Most of them arrived with no possessions and are in need of our help. The Connor Brothers are releasing this new print to raise funds to buy shoes and winter coats, the two items that people in The Jungle most requested.

100% of the proceeds from sales of the print will go to helping the people living in The Jungle this winter.

In addition to the print release The Connor Brothers are asking for donations of shoes and coats which will be delivered to the refugees in The Jungle in September.
